Cincinnati Fire Department Fills the Boot for MDA
Cincinnati Local 48 Fire Fighters will show their Muscle hosting a Fill The Boot Drive at various intersections across Cincinnati on Friday, August 9th. Community members are excited to help their local fire fighters, and put out the flame on neuromuscular diseases. The Department has 26 houses and they plan on filling the boot twice more in August with a goal of raising over $50,000. The money raised at the events will benefit Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky families in their battle with neuromuscular disease.
MDA is a voluntary health organization dedicated to providing treatment and finding cures for more than 40 neuromuscular diseases. In Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, MDA offers hope and help to thousands of families by funding specialized clinics, providing support groups and assisting with the repairs of wheelchairs, leg braces and communication devices. MDA also sends children ages 6-17 to camp for a fun-filled and barrier-free week where they make new friends, try new activities, and develop increased self-confidence.
